Trustees and Associates Meet,
Approve Study, Hike Tuition
Dance Company Set
To Perform Here
Several important resolutions, as
well as a $300 tuition increase, were
adopted by the Board of Trustees
and Board of Associates at their
fall meeting on September 26-27.
According to Pres. E. Bruce Heil
man, the most important resolution
was the adoption by the Boards of
the Self-Study program which ad
ministration, faculty, and students
have been working on for the past
two years. Included in the Self-Study
were 301 resolutions. The Boards
“accepted, endorsed, and strongly
affirmed the spirit and intent” of
the study. The study will now be
submitted to the Southern Associa
tion for approval in November.
In other business the Boards
voted to raise tuition $300, bringing
the cost to $2,400 for the 1970-71
academic year. The hope was also
expressed by the Trustees and As
sociates that in the next ten years
any raise in tuition will not exceed
$100 per year,
Along with the rise in tuition, a
rise in student aid was also ap
proved. “We hope in this way to
prevent students from leaving Mere
dith for financial reasons,” Dr. Heil
man said.
An architect for the new college
center was selected. A new salary
scale for the faculty was also
adopted. The new plan provides for
continuing increases m salaries,
notes Dr. Heilman.
New officers were also elected.

Chairman of the Board of Trustees,
Mr. Ed Rankin is the Vice Chair
man, and Mr. Jethro Broadwell is
the Secretary. Mr. C. C. Cameron
was elected the new chairman of
the Board of Associates.
The Board also elected the new
faculty members for the 1970-71
academic year.
